Zucchini Fritters With Citrus Yogurt Sauce [Vegan, Gluten-Free]



For the Zucchini Fritters:

  • 4 cups grated zucchini
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 handful parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons ground chia (or flax meal) and 6 tablespoon water
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 3/4 cup gluten-free bread crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons psyllium husk
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

For the Citrus Yogurt:

  • 1 cup vegan yogurt
  • Zest from 1 lemon
  • 1/2 garlic clove
  • Salt and pepper
  • Olive oil


  1. Grate 2 big zucchinis (or enough to fill 4 cups). Add the grated zucchini to a cheesecloth/nut-milk bag or thin kitchen towel in a colander over your kitchen sink. Sprinkle with the 1 teaspoon of salt and leave to drain for 10 minutes.
  2. After ten minutes, squeeze as much liquid out of the zucchini as possible. This is a crucial step for your fritters to become firm and not soggy!
  3. Prepare the chia eggs by mixing the chia flour and the water in a separate small bowl and leave for 3-5 minutes.
  4. Add the drained zucchini and the chia eggs to a bowl and mix in all the other ingredients until combined.
  5. Form fritters and slightly flatten them on a baking sheet with your fingers until you get about 9 of them. Make sure to use some oil or baking paper under the fritters.
  6. Brush the fritters with some olive oil.
  7. Bake in the oven on 390°F for 15-17 minutes.
  8. Make citrus yogurt sauce by mixing together all sauce ingredients.
